Spring is in the air and so is the itch to spring clean, or maybe to take a vacation instead. But just because you want to get away and let your hair down, doesn’t mean you have to empty your bank account. If your budget is limited, you can still take a spring break vacation without going broke. Here are 6 budget friendly spring getaways to consider.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Travelling out of the U.S. doesn’t have to be expensive. During my search for a beach vacation, one website advertised an all-inclusive vacay of 4 nights, with airfare for $399.00. Plus, they boasted of sandy beaches and beautiful scenery. There are many activities you can pay just a little extra for, such as a half day dune buggy adventure, zip lining, catamaran cruise, night clubs and more. This is a great beach vacation destination.
If you long to see the rainforest, this is the spot for you. You can find lots of travel deals for Puerto Rico. A quick search I did showed a 4 night, airfare included getaway listed for $499.00. Snorkeling, Kayaking, and Segway tours are a few of the fun things to do at this beautiful, sunny spot.
Myrtle Beach, SC
Don’t want to deal with a passport? Myrtle Beach might be for you. You can rent a room for as low as $50.00 a night at some hotels in this area. Myrtle Beach is known for having great concerts, an amusement park, shows and good eats as well as many more activities to choose from.
New Orleans, LA
The French Quarter is another interesting destination you might find that fits your budget. Hotels can go for as low as $100.00 per night depending on when you travel, and there are plenty of activities to fill your time. Take a dinner cruise or an airboat ride. You could also visit a plantation and take in some history while you’re visiting this beautiful city. Make sure you take the time to sightsee!
Hotels near the Walt Disney Theme Park can be found for around $100.00 per night. You won’t have any trouble finding things to do here. Just go to the Disney Theme Park and you’re set!
If you’re a nature buff, you might want to go north. Do your homework and you can find rooms here for around $100.00 per night, or even less. Beautiful scenery is one of the main attractions, so be sure to take it all in. There’s also good food, plenty of souvenir shops, hiking, boating, horseback riding, and much more. And don’t forget to visit Old Faithful!
If you want to keep your expenses down and keep a little more in your pocket for food and souvenirs, try to take your trip during the week to avoid peak days. This should make hotel room rates and airfare cheaper. You should also consider a red-eye flight. For transportation while at your destination, do your research. Maybe the activities you are going to engage in are within walking distance. If not, is public transportation an option? This is typically a much more affordable option than renting a car or even taking an Uber. There are definitely ways to make spring getaways more affordable.
